Introduction

The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful and flexible HTTP/1.1 compliant web server. Originally designed as a replacement for the NCSA HTTP Server, it has grown to be the most popular web server on the Internet. As a project of the Apache Software Foundation, the developers aim to collaboratively develop and maintain a robust, commercial-grade, standards-based server with freely available source code.

Enjoy,

Apache Haus Crew



Installation

You must first install the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package. Download and Install, if you have not done so already (see URL above)

Unzip the Apache24 folder in the package zip file to the root directory on any drive. This is the "ServerRoot" in the config.
Example: c:\Apache24

To test your installation;

Open a command prompt window and cd to the \Apace24\bin folder on the drive you unzipped the zip file to.

To Start Apache in the command prompt type:

httpd.exe

Press Enter. If there are any errors it will tell you. Warnings will not stop Apache from working, they do need to be addressed none the less. If there are no errors (there shouldn't be, but it happens) the cursor will sit and blink on the next line. So far so good.

This distribution comes pre-configured for localhost. You can now test your installation by opening up your Web Browser and typing in the address:

http://localhost

If everything is working properly you should see the Apache Haus's test page.

You can shut down Apache by pressing Ctrl+C (It may take a few seconds)


To Install Apache as a service:

In most cases you will want to run Apache as a Windows Service.
To do so you install Apache as a service by typing at the command prompt [1];

httpd -k install

You can then start Apache by typing

httpd -k start

Apache will then start and eventually release the command prompt window.

[1] You have to run the command prompt as Administrator in Windows Vista/7/2008/8/8.1/10/2012/


Other Command line options:

Stop Apache   httpd -k stop
Restart Apache httpd -k restart
Uninstall Apache Service httpd -k uninstall
Test Config Syntax httpd -t
Version Details httpd -V
Command Line Options List httpd -h


Connecting to databases - DBD/M Suport

Apache Haus builds include three (3) DBD drivers, ODBC, MySQL and SQLite3. ODBC itself is installed at the time you install your desired Windows ODBC provider or ODBC client driver. Because SQLite3 is in the public domain, sqlite3.dll has been included.

The MySQL DLL required (libmysql.dll) may be obtained from

https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/

Note that this dbd driver was built against MySQL 5.6.21 (but earlier and later version 5.6 .dll's may work.) libmysql.dll must be included in Apache's /bin folder to be used.



Encrypted Session Cookies

Authentication sessions and session cookies were added to Apache in 2.4. Beginning with APR 1.5 you can now encrypt the session cookies so that usernames and passwords are not readable. Everything needed to do this has been included in this package.



ApacheMonitor

The ApacheMonitor is a desktop tray application that allows you to monitor the existence of a running Apache service and easily start, stop and restart Apache. To use it just double click on the ApacheMonitor.exe in the \Apache24\bin folder. If you want it to start automatically for you when you log into the computer, just drag a copy into the Startup folder in Window's Start Menu.



Included 3rd party modules

None
